3 stars All throughout Romantic Warrior, one will find very engaging, interesting, and often downright cool parts- the bass riff that opens The Sorceress, about 1:12 into Medieval Overture, and the beginning part of Majestic Dance. However, the problem is that, while they are capable of making very good laid-back jazzy stuff to fill things in between these spectacular moments, they sometimes drift off into passages of instrumentation that just aren't all that interesting- they don't do it as much or as severely as ELP, but they do it. Romantic Warrior could possibly have used a bit of streamlining and fuzz-trimming, but beyond that, there are good fun times to be had listening to this album of dizzying talent, fraught with solos and riffs and talent in excess.
Neurotarkus | 3/5 |
